Latest Batch of Collect Quests

By nexoScanner / November 12, 2016

The latest update of the Merlok 2.0 app caused the Quests to disappear.  Quests still exist, but we don't have any way of seeing what the quests are or what is required to complete the quests.  The general strategy is to acquire as many Nexo Shields as possible.

Week 31 Boss Battle Nexo Power Roundup – 7/29

By nexoScanner / August 1, 2016

When the Weekly Boss Batles and Leaderboards were announced, I thought this would be awesome.  Running this website, I knew that I was part of an elite group of gamers that had access to nearly EVERY known Nexo Power.  Surely, I would be able to rank well on the leaderboards.

  1. In order to scan this code, you must first completely exit the Merlok 2.0 app
  2. Change the time zone on your device to GMT+0/London
  3. Start the game and scan our 24 hr QR code
  4. Once you scan the code, you can continue playing or exit the game.  Just be sure to change your time zone back to its original setting.

Disclaimer: There is evidence that higher star levels do absolutely no extra damage and do not have a longer duration.  It may also take longer for 5 star powers to charge up.  0 star powers often charge in 1 battle while 5 star powers may take nearly 3 battles to fully charge.

At this point in the game, upgrading all of your powers to 5 stars may make it harder to use your shield powers.

Nexo Knights Advanced Shield Scanning

By nexoScanner / January 31, 2016

Generating Friend Codes of your Shield Powers for your friends to scan can be a VERY efficient way of leveling up your Nexo Knight's powers.  You can generate a QR code in the game and let friends scan it to level up their shield powers.  I'll give you a few examples to illustrate how you can save many hours by using Friend Codes instead of normal shield images.

Don’t Level Up Your Nexo Knights Shield Powers

By nexoScanner / January 29, 2016

Yes, you heard it here first Lego Knights.  The Merlok 2.0 game is still in it's early stages and it shouldn't take more than a few days (maybe as long as 2 weeks if you're a very casual gamer) to complete all of the areas that are currently available to explore.  The chatter coming from the Lego Nexo Knights Google+ community (founded by Envill the Purple Knight) is that higher star levels don't affect gameplay at all.

When you compare a shield power at 0-stars and the same shield power at 5-stars, the damage, duration, and charge time don't seem to change. Personally, I suspected that the charge time would increase as you level up your shield power, but that does not appear to be true. 

So, what does this mean?  Scanning energy is your most limited resource.  Concentrate on scanning all of the available shield powers just once.  Get them all to 0-star and enjoy the game.  Sit back and relax until Axl gets unlocked or until the next area gets unlocked (one of the mods at the Google+ community reports that Rockland may be released before the end of February).  Grind for bits and armor components so that you can increase the power and armor of your favorite knight(s).

AFTER you have all of the shield powers at 0-stars, then you can start working on advancing your shield powers.

Disclaimer: Yes, I know there is a way to level up your skills to 5-stars in the same amount of time that it would take to get all of your skills to 0-stars, but there are also reports from a few gamers that feel the charge time for their high level powers takes too long and they cannot power up once by the time they get to the 3rd battle of each stage.  Stay low, my friends. At least until we see higher damage/duration for high level shield powers.
